Green Bay Packers Vs. Atlanta Falcons Score: 42-21, Packers Up Big In 4th Quarter

The Atlanta Falcons cut the Green Bay Packers lead to 42-21 but still have a lot of work to do in the fourth quarter of the NFC divisional playoff game. The scoring drive took seven plays and 73 yards and finished with Matt Ryan finding Roddy White for a six-yard touchdown.

The score breaks the Packers run of 35 unanswered points and gives the Falcons a little life in the fourth quarter. Ryan is 16-for-22 for 170 yards and one touchdown passing but has thrown two interceptions.

Michael Turner has rushed for only 39 yards on 10 carries and hasn’t been a huge part of the gameplan since falling behind in the second quarter. Michael Jenkins leads all Falcons receivers with three catches for 57 yards.

The Falcons attempted an onside kick after their touchdown and receovered it but the Packers gained possession because of an illegal touching penalty by Brian Finneran.
